Zrub Zuzana Poprad, Tatra Mountains, Slovakia
Our traditional Zrub (Slovak log house) was built in 1912 but has recently been renovated to include modern amenities, yet remain a National Treasure of Slovakia (equivalent to a UK 'listed building'). Spacious, it sleeps 6 (+2) in lovely natural surroundings facing the Belianske Tatry mountains (which rise to 2,150 m). A romantic all-season hideaway cottage. Zrub Zuzana lies at 930 m above sea level and is situated in the Conservation Area for Folk Architecture of Antošovský Vrch, above the village of Å½diar, Slovakia. The quiet location on open hillside allows walking direct from the front door. On the edge of Slovakia's High Tatras National Park, there is a wonderful ‘away from it all’ feeling. It is a great place for wildlife, with deer even being seen occasionally at the house. 35 km / 30 min. from Poprad and its airport. The character of the traditional architecture and its tranquil location gives Zrub Zuzana an ‘olde worlde charm’, brought bang up-to-date with modern facilities for the discerning traveller. The fresh mountain air with alpine sun can produce a romantic hideaway or outdoor pursuits centre, as a couple or family group, at your pleasure. Ski, cycle, walk, fish, golf, relax in a mineral water spa or just sit and watch the endless variety of the view. Still a working village, you can glimpse traditional rural life, with horses being used to till the land, collect the potatoes and even take you on a sleigh-ride in the snow! It will be as relaxing a holiday as you want to make it, at any time of year.
Master Suite The master suite is in the west wing, formerly part of the farm buildings, and reflects its history with original timbers highlighting the original pole construction. Totally rebuilt, this has a large double bed (160x200cm). The walk-through wardrobe with dresser and hanging space leads to the very modern en-suite of twin-ended bath with shower over, double basin and wall-mounted wc. The suite enjoys mountain views. Bedroom 2 This room in the original house is furnished in a more traditional style with twin beds and mountain views. The modern ensuite has a multi-jet shower cubicle, modern washstand and wc. Bedroom 3 This room has twin beds and mountain views. Family Bathroom The main bathroom has modern bath with shower, basin and wc. Kitchen/Dining The kitchen has a traditional Slovak table with bench and chair seating for 8 and modern, traditionally-styled units housing the cooker, hob, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. It also has a microwave, kettle, toaster, full complement of china, glassware etc. Lounge The original main room of the old house, the large, log-walled lounge has a glass-doored log fire, new comfortable seating and wonderful views. It includes a modern double sofa-bed, with a good-sized sleeping area. The utility room off the entrance lobby houses the central heating water storage system and is designed to allow drying of ski /walking clothing etc. Towels and linen are included, also towels for use at the local spas. The cottage will be cleaned and serviced before arrival. Suitable for children, and a high chair and cot can be arranged if sufficient notice given. You can reach the door of the house by car from Spring to Autumn. In Winter, snow can mean a 200m walk to the door. There are two steps down from the entrance level to the general house level. However, because of the traditional log construction, some doorways include a high threshold (200mm), so although the property is on one level, wheelchair access would be difficult.
